8/10 Penrith Steve Customer review, 10th February 2015

Back in the early 2000s the Black Keys did a bit of mouthing off in the direction of The White Stripes suggesting that Jack White didn't know what real Blues was and seemed to set a course of showing him exactly how it's done. The early Black Keys music is no better than the White Stripes, I'm a fan of both, and whether they were right or wrong in their verbal attacks on Jack White is neither here nor there. The Black Keys do know what the Blues is and show it on "Thickfreakness", their second album from 2003. From the opening note of the title track, you know what you're getting. They have a kind of pre-Cream sound, albeit without the Clapton solos, imbued with the spirit of late '60s-early '70s John Lee Hooker. The guitar and drums duo certainly cut a cool groove of mostly mid-tempo blues stomp. "Set You Free" stands out as one of the more rocky tracks. All in all a solid blues-rock album.
